DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/26/19): NBA DFS Lineups


Sandwiched in between two huge nights of NBA basketball, we have a barren slate of just two games on Tuesday. The schedule starts to get wacky during a holiday week so this is not necessarily out of the norm.

Because of the extremely small slate, we will not mention the obvious stars such as Luka Doncic, Kawhi Leonard and Nikola Jokic. Instead, let's look at some players who can provide value at their current draft prices.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 11/26/19.  You can also check out today's FanDuel lineup picks.  Remember to monitor injury news as the slate can completely change before line-up lock.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Jamal Murray - PG/SG, DEN v. WAS ($7,400)

The Washington Wizards has been awful on defense this season. The Wizards allow the third-best field goal percentage, ninth-most points and 10th-most three-pointers made to opposing guards this season. Murray comes into Tuesday having scored at least 22 points in three of his last four games, including a 39-point outburst. Murray should also benefit from the pace with the Wizards being fifth in the league in pace this year. Look for Murray to be a complimentary piece to your lineup in Tuesday's slate.

Tim Hardaway Jr.- SG/SF, DAL v. LAC ($5,000)

A two-game absence for Seth Curry (illness) has paved the way for Hardaway to win the starting job and even earn praise from head coach Rick Carlisle. Curry returned from the illness, yet Hardaway still kept his starting job and dropped 31 points in the process, albeit against the lackluster Houston Rockets defense. Over the past three games, Hardaway has averaged 22.3 points on 66.7 percent shooting and 4.3 assists. The shooting is unsustainable as evident by Hardaway's career 41.8 percent shooting. However, the fact Hardaway will continue to start is very promising for his value Tuesday night.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Davis Bertans - SF/PF, WAS @ DEN ($5,200)

Bertans has earned a green light with his new team this year. Bertans is averaging career-highs in minutes (27.9), three-pointers made (3.4), three-pointers attempted (7.6) and three-point percentage (44.3 percent). In his past four games, Bertans is averaging 4.8 threes and 50.0 percent from beyond the arc. Washington should be down early in this one, forcing the Wizards to rely on three-point shooting to get them back in the game. Bertans most likely won't shoot as efficiently in this one, but he will have plenty of opportunities.

Moritz Wagner - PF/C, WAS @ DEN ($4,500)

Similar to Bertans, Wagner isn't the flashiest of players, but he has been serviceable in limited minutes for Washington's second unit. Not too long ago, Wagner posted a 30-point, 15-rebound stat line in just 25 minutes. Wagner has shown he can put up numbers in limited minutes, he just lacks the opportunity. Tuesday night's contest is against a very good Denver Nuggets team. There's a good chance the Nuggets break the game open, leaving more minutes for the reserves. Denver has also given up the eighth-most DraftKings fantasy points to opposing centers this year. Wagner is a high-risk, high-reward play in Tuesday's slate.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Paul Millsap - PF/C, DEN v. WAS ($5,400)

Outside of the fantasy juggernaut that is Nikola Jokic, the center position is extremely scarce in this two-game slate. If you are adventurous and decide to pass on Jokic, look for his teammate Paul Millsap. Millsap has scored in the double digits in nine consecutive outings and has an average of 31.83 DraftKings fantasy points over the same span.  Millsap also has an enticing match-up against the Washington Wizards. The Wizards are the second-worst defensively this season, yet they are fifth in the league in pace. With more uptempo offense, Millsap will have more opportunities to stuff the stat sheet.
